"...RED HEAT is directed in a fiery, muscular, pop-graphic style....The movie twists up the expectations..."
A highly disciplined Russian detective (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and a fearless, but undisciplined Chicago cop (Jim Belushi) are one mismatched team hot on the trail of Russia's deadliest drug smuggler throughout the mean streets of Chicago.
Viktor, a narcotics kingpin in the USSR, leaves the country and heads for Chicago. Subsequently, Russia's brawniest (and sternest) officer follows him to the Windy City, where he teams up with a loud-mouthed American cop. Together the mismatched, culture-clashing, rule-breaking duo attempt to track down the nefarious Viktor.
